    Oh, and that is a "military reenactment".

    Also, a man was locked in Guantanamo bay for 6 years and he was completely innocent. He got water boarded weekly for all six years... (I'll dig up the story if you make me. I heard it on the radio though...)
    Ooh Ooh, find the one about the guy trying to kill himself by banging his head on his cell wall due to the brutality of his torture regime, damaging his skull!

    Or the one who tried to kill himself and wrote "I killed myself due to the brutality of my oppressors." on the wall in his own bloooood!

    Either you are being sarcastic, misreading what I wrote, or have no clue what you are talking about.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    I guess there was the fourth option I didn't even consider, you were telling the truth . I'm missing your point...

    Please provided some type of validation of proof that it was conducted properly for ten minutes. If you can not provided this information easily I understand, but you must understand I will look upon this as unverified and fictional.

    You have to be a real jerk to miss the teasing. Of course some liberals have a stick up their ass.

    I understand the Obama administration is continuing the policy of rendition. If this is true, I regret deeply that I ever voted for the man.

    There is rendition, and then there is extreme rendition....

    I suggest the teasing (note I said I think you know) is the attmept to side step. There's a difference between a funny attempt at teasing, and one that falls flat.

    Just saying. . . .

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
